Having shifted to telework en masse during the pandemic, many companies are still in the process of reaching a new cultural equilibrium as they navigate distributed work. And while it’s become clear that more jobs can be done remotely than we had previously thought, the continued need for investments in community and connection amongst a more distributed workforce has not been adequately addressed.
In order to develop high-value experiences with opportunities for knowledge-sharing, collaboration, and socialization for remote and in-person workers alike, companies need to adopt a more flexible mindset and clarify their mission, vision, values, and purpose. In this session, we will actively question the sustainability of existing workplace strategies through a prioritization of empathy, trust, and agility. Panelists will touch on policies, practices, tools, and systems that can help foster a shared sense of purpose and overall well-being amongst all workers, regardless of where and how they work.
